Make your own way to King Street Wharf to board your boat, the Bella Vista, which features 10-foot-high (3-meter) windows on the main deck, plus spacious upper and wrap-around decks that allow for 360-degree views.

Set out on the waters of Sydney Harbour and enjoy watching the sunset as you nibble on a delicious selection of appetizers, accompanied by your choice of unlimited complimentary sparkling, red or white wine, beer, or soft drinks. As evening falls, your boat become part of the festivities as it joins the Harbour of Light Parade, made up of colorful lighted vessels that have been invited into the exclusion zone in the middle of Sydney Harbour.

Take in the best views of Sydney’s skyline and harbor as your boat glides around the exclusion zone, which is off-limits to regular boat traffic for this special event. You get front-row views of the festive boats and waterfront, and enjoy prime positioning for the dazzling 9pm fireworks display.

Inside the main deck cabin, a professional disc jockey spins favorite dance tunes to get you out on the dance floor. Cocktail snacks and drinks are available throughout the night.

Feel the excitement build as the Bella Vista joins an exclusive flotilla of boats to celebrate as the year ticks over into 2016.

The view of the firework display from the ship in the harbour area was awesome. It was difficult to know in which direction to look.

I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else on New Year's eve! The views of the harbour, the fireworks, and the brudge from onboard was second to none. The crew, especially Dan, was friendly and professional. The food was quite good, served to temperature, and plentiful. I say go!!!

It was the best new years Eve that i have ever had. Sydney being one of the most beautiful city's in the world only added to the experience. But you had the added bonus of seeing the fireworks from the water. What a view it was, the show was second to none.
The staff on board were friendly and i were at hand with food and drink, which seemed to be endless. There was a good choice of food and i am sure there would have been something for everyone.
After a bad 2013 i had at least a memorable day to go out on. I had a fantastic time.

I recommend the Sydney Harbour New Years Eve Cocktail Cruise because it is beautiful and terrific, but there is a big problem for me, sometimes the music is too loud. I am not a young man anymore!
